If you're a human with a pulse, you're no doubt familiar with the pitfalls of Tinder and similar dating apps.

Despite your attempts to use the service in good faith, there will always be other fish in the dating sea that spoil the experience — or at least memorably mar it.

The nightmare parade begins as you swipe through and learn how other people see themselves — or at least how they want others to see them. The short list of 'masculine' activities men claim to engage in — game day with my bros, Bloody Mary brunch with my bros, camping and pissing on trees with my bros — to woo the fairer sex becomes boring quickly.


Are you allergic to culture? Would it kill you to finish a book?!

Even worse, however, are the men whose bios contain offensively specific criteria for women.

Twitter user @TheDreamGhoul, who's worth following in her own right, unveiled what might be the 'worst straight dude tinder bio' ever this week. Let's just say I'm not interested in hearing about how 'annoying' your boyfriend is, Linda, when the waters are infested with sharks like these:

...was that not WILD? I'm not even short enough for this jamoke, and I'm short enough that I dated a 5'5" guy for seven months. He was lovely. If you're reading this: Hi Jere!

Anyway, this particular bio pierced the jaded, cynical shell of daters everywhere, who delivered some REACTIONS, honey. This man needs a religious woman who's also a 'freak in bed'! Gotta love that Madonna/Whore complex at work.

The verdict is in: this guy deserves to be forever alone.

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."

4-year-old New Zealand boy and police share toys.

Sometimes the adorableness of small children is almost too much to take.

According to the New Zealand Police, a 4-year-old called the country's emergency number to report that he had some toys for them—and that's only the first cute thing to happen in this story.

After calling 111 (the New Zealand equivalent to 911), the preschooler told the "police lady" who answered the call that he had some toys for her. "Come over and see them!" he said to her.

The dispatcher asked where he was, and then the boy's father picked up. He explained that the kids' mother was sick and the boy had made the call while he was attending to the other child. After confirming that there was no emergency—all in a remarkably calm exchange—the call was ended. The whole exchange was so sweet and innocent.

But then it went to another level of wholesome. The dispatcher put out a call to the police units asking if anyone was available to go look at the 4-year-old's toys. And an officer responded in the affirmative as if this were a totally normal occurrence.
